Talk About Your Orchestra!

Postby Catmando » Mon Mar 26, 2007 8:07 am

I thought I'd create this post in Radio Active section, since it has less activity than the Musical Notes and Culture Connections section. Post about upcoming concerts and seasons of your local orchestra here! :D

Also welcome are concerts or events of Chamber Orchestras! :)

Also plan on attending 1 event for the Manitoba Chamber Orchestra, and 2 events on the Winnipeg Chamber Society (which I just came across and didn't realize existed).

The closest symphony to me, that I am aware of, is the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra. I haven't seen them in years. They used to perform at Southeast Missouri State University on occasion, which is where I've seen them.

They will be performing Beethoven's Symphony No. 3 in late April, which would be worth the trip if I can swing it. It includes some other works:

PURCELL/STUCKY Funeral Music for Queen Mary
ADAMS The Dharma at Big Sur
BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 3, “Eroica”

I believe there are also symphony orchestras at Carbondale, IL and Puducah, KY, but I am not familiar with them. I will see if I can find any information on them and post it.

I know, I know! I should support the arts better than I do. I usually buy CD's so that I can listen on my shedule, rather than theirs. If I'm in the mood for Beethoven, I want to hear it when I'm in the mood to hear it, not wait a month and drive an hour or more to hear it. That, and the fact that I don't own a tux...

Most emberassing! :oops:

The University here in Cape has a symphony orchestra. Here is their schedule:

http://www.semo.edu/music/calendar.htm

Obviously, I've never attended one of their concerts, I don't even think I've seen one advertised before. Apparently they do not reach out beyond the campus for advertising...

Oh my goodness! What a phenomenal concert it was. The Rite of Spring heard live is a must......it was immensely sensational and riveting! Loud and a little frightening at times, the tension left you uneasy in your seat, just fabulous!!

Satie's "Parade" was also quite interesting, had alot of "prop" instruments such as typewriter, siren, clip-clop blocks to mimick horse hoofs trotting, etc.

The timpani, percusssion and brass in The Rite of Spring was SO LOUD!!! Awesome!

I had the good fortune to attend a performance by our Santa Rosa Symponly on Saturday. The guest soloist was Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg
and she played (with the Symphony) Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 35. OMG...what an incredible performance! Sonnenberg played like she was possessed. She has a very strange stage presence, but when she has the fiddle in her hands she is magical.

Anyway, It was certainly a night to remember and now, I cannot get the musical theme out of my head. I'll have to ask Nicole to play it or I'll go nuts.

Glad you enjoyed it. Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto is certainly one of the finest!

Talk about my orchestra! Sure!

I am principal double bassist with the West Hartford Symphony Orchestra. We have a concert this weekend (the 19th) featuring an all pops program. We will feature jazz, skat, and a host of traditional pops tunes. I play with a great group of musicians! Check us out! http://www.whso.org

I've always been impressed with anyone who can make music come out of anything more complicated to operate than a radio.

YRH, do you appear on any recordings? Can we hear some of your work on b dot c?
